You just have to figure out the table dynamics and the type of villains you are up against.
Some table, players only 3-bet with QQ-AA, some tables players only 3-bet with KK, AA, some tables players 3-bet with T9s when they are in position...
How you adjust and how you play JJ will vary accordingly.
You were at the table long enough to figure out what Villian's 3-bet range was... but the fact that you forgot to mention villain tendencies in your post tells me you aren't that advanced.
Sorry, not trying to be a prick, but recreational players don't think about those sorts of things. They just think "I have JJ, what should I do?"
The answer is, "Well, what type of villains are at the table and what are the table dynamics. If the table dynamics are aggro, then a c/r may be best. If the table dynamics are passive, then a lead out bet is best. If the table dynamics are super loose passive then I should lead out for a lot!!!"
Think about your villains? Think about the typical raises? How often where pots raised pre? How often where pots 3-bet pre? How often did V 3-bet? How many players typically called preflop raises? What where the typical preflop raise amounts: 3bb, 7bb, 12bb???
All that is vital information required to answer your question.
